Fly Nation - Stuart FL 2009

Just got back from an incredible trip to my home town of Stuart, FL..
Fished with my buddy John Meskauskas of (if you want to catch fish, give John a call!) and Nick & Nicole from /
We put in some long days on the water which paid off huge. Nick, Nicole and I all caught our first fly caught permit!! John was able to take off his "guide hat" and catch one for himself. When all was said and done, we brought tarpon, permit, bonito, cobia (one 50lbs!) and snook to the boat (all on fly).
The video footage taken will be used for a TV series called Fly Nation (stay tuned for air dates).
A big thanks to John, Nick and Nicole! It was a week full of some of the best fishing I've ever had (as well as some funny-ass memories).

Cheers - Rob

A Better Presentation

Bug Slinger™ is an art driven clothing line born somewhere between the Florida Keys and the Driftless area of southwest Wisconsin. While the rest of the fly fishing industry is continuing to develop tired designs for fly fishing apparel, we set out to create a hip brand built around artistic designs to reflect a fresher insight into our sport. Our clothing is an outward expression of the way we view fly fishing. The designs for our shirts, hats and accessories are influenced by current trends from the action sports, fashion and music industries.

Bug Slinger's clothing caters to you, the sophisticated angler and traveler who knows our sport. You want to let people know that you are serious about fly fishing and its image...and you want style. So, with that said, we hope you'll check us out and embrace a fresh approach to fly fishing designs.
